|Abstract: ||Polymers exhibit low electron density and
they are radiolucent. Polymers can be made radiopaque
by different techniques. We report a method for the preparation
of radiopaque material from natural rubber (NR).
NR in its latex form was iodinated. Iodinated natural
rubber (INR) was characterized by using UV, thermo
gravimetric analysis (TGA), and X-ray images. INR was
compounded at high and low temperatures and its physical properties were measured. The low temperature
cured samples show good radiopacity and conductivity.
